ISOFIX child seats

ISOFIX child seats

ISOFIX anchoring points and the ISOFIX fastening system

Your vehicle is ISOFIX approved in conformance with European law ECE 14-06. The lateral rear seats and the front passenger seat are fitted with regulation ISOFIX anchoring points.

Incorrect installation of a child seat in a vehicle compromises protection of the child in the event of a collision. The ISOFIX system enables you to minimise the risks posed by incorrect fitting.

The ISOFIX fastening system gives you a convenient, strong and reliable fitting for a child seat in your vehicle.
